"In the love of the true saint God is the lowest foundation; the love of the excellency of His nature is the foundation of all the affections which come afterwards, wherein self-love is concerned as a handmaid: but the hypocrite lays himself at the bottom of all, as the first foundation, and lays on God as the superstructure; and even his acknowledgment of God's glory itself depends on his regard to his private interest."
Jonathan Edwards. "The Religious Affections." Dover Publications, Inc: Mineola, New York. (1746) 2013. p.173.
